She Drives Me Crazy Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
After an embarrassing loss to her ex-girlfriend in their first basketball game of the season, Scottie Zajac gets into a fender bender with the worst possible person: her nemesis, Irene Abraham, who is as beautiful as she is mean. When the damage sends Irene's car to the shop for weeks' worth of repairs, the girls are forced to carpool for the foreseeable future.
Their rocky start only gets bumpier the more time they spend together. But when an opportunity presents itself for Scottie to get back at her toxic ex (and climb their school's social ladder at the same time), she bribes Irene into playing along.

I ADORED all of the characters. Irene was so unapologetically herself. There was so much more to her underneath the surface. I love how Quindlen wrote her character and how her “coming out” was handled. The banter between her and Scottie was golden.
I loved Scottie. Her character was so relatable and realistic. I felt her grief and broken heart. I loved the relationship she had with her parents and sisters. They were all soo supportive.
There were so many life lessons and good advice in this nook about being true to yourself and loving yourself before you can even contemplate a relationship with someone else. The friendships in this book were so healthy.
Overall, I loved this book! I want everyone to read it. It’s a quick read, cute, and absolutely cheesy. This was a book I didn’t know I needed. I may actually reread it again before this year ends.
Scottie, after losing a basketball game to her ex-girlfriend’s team and rear ending her nemesis, Irene, in the school lot, comes up with a plan to solve her and Irene’s problem. She’ll pay to fix Irene’s car if Irene pretends to date her. And chaos ensues.
I absolutely loved this book and the characters as well. It’s fast paced and easy to follow, and I flew through it in just a few hours. Scottie is dealing with the loss of her ex, Tally, as she struggles to reconcile her idea of Tally with the person Tally truly was. She’s hurting, and she’s not quite sure how to handle it, so she makes questionable choices in the process. It was interesting to see the push and pull of her and Tally’s relationship. Because even though they clearly weren’t good for each other, they somehow kept coming back together.
Irene, head cheerleader, Desi and a force to be reckoned with. She knows what she wants, and she takes it, and I absolutely love her for it. When she’s not challenging the notion that cheerleading isn’t a real sport, she’s riling up Scottie. They fit well together and their banter is always entertaining. There’s truly never a dull moment with them.
I liked the communication in the book. It wasn’t always smooth, but Scottie being able to articulate to Irene the mental space that she was in - warms my heart. I loved that even though the book was fast paced, the romance didn’t feel rushed at any point. It was a natural progression. I didn’t like the ending with Charlotte because it just didn’t give me the closure I needed. She never really faced any consequences for her actions towards Irene and Scottie (arguably), and it just didn’t sit right with me.
This is definitely a book I’ll be recommending. I genuinely enjoyed the writing and I loved the characters. Even though it’s targeted towards a younger age group, I feel like anyone who reads it would be able to enjoy it.
If you love sapphic enemies to lovers and the fake-dating trope, this book is definitely for you.
Final Rating: 4.5
This is a YA book about high school seniors figuring themselves out; the main protagonist is gay. I'm was looking for something light to read. This was great; beautiful character arcs, nicely written, not boring or dumbed down. Just enough drama and just the right amount of introspection (I abhor needless drama and too much introspection!). 10/10 for being exactly what I wanted. No regrets ☺
Enemies to lovers is my absolute favorite trope, but sometimes the transition from/to is rushed. Characters go from being on the verge of plotting murder to suddenly in love. I know that the line between love and hate is thin, but I'm not sure it's one civil conversation thin. Not with this little gem of a story, though; the evolution of their feelings were gradual. From glimpses of them soften towards each other like when Scottie starts standing up for cheerleaders and how they deserve to be called athletes (they really do) and how Irene begins to open up more to Scottie. Followed, of course, by more banter and bickering. Then there are the bigger gestures when Scottie willingly gets detention to protect Irene and Irene ruining Scottie's ex's night to make Scottie feel better (it's fine, the ex totally deserved it). And than back to the banter. The banter never stops with these two, but it works for them. I thought the dialogue was great so I'm all for it.
They are mean to each other sometimes. Occasionally, they have fights that go beyond two people who aren't really sure how to exist around each other. But, in the end, they communicate in an open and constructive way. Something I wish I could do. haha
My only two complaints are that I don't love that Irene gave up being SAOY, especially because her original reason for wanted the award went beyond paying for college. But when Danielle was nominated, I assumed Irene wouldn't be winning. Still, dropping out of the race seemed very un-Irene. Unless...she was worried about splitting the votes and Charlotte winning the award. Hmm, maybe that's what I'll tell myself. The second complaint is that I have had the song She Drives Me Crazy stuck in my head all day because of this book.

Mir hat die Storyline auch echt gut gefallen. Und die Charaktere waren auch echt interessant. Ich konnte mich sehr gut in Scotties Rolle versetzen.
Ich fand super das es nicht so eine Coming-Out Story war sondern eher andere Themen im Fokus standen.
Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen!
